Kevin Hillaker received his Master of Science in Business Intelligence & Analytics from Saint Joseph’s University.
My name is Kevin Hillaker. I recently transitioned to data engineer in the manufacturing industry. To be honest, I was overwhelmed with the breadth and depth of the field.
Attending DataScienceDojo was a smart move. The pre-work and boot camp have allowed me to better understand what it takes to be successful in the field, and some of the pitfalls to watch out for as a new practitioner. I presume the same is true for the post-bootcamp coursework (I’ll know soon enough).
With this new found information, I believe I am now on a trajectory to develop a domain specific methodology. The boot camp provided tools to evaluate data, engineer features, build and evaluate models.
All of the topics covered were presented in a way anyone can learn. Further, questions were actively encouraged. Participants were continuously challenged to think outside the box and apply their past experiences to the data challenges presented. Overall, this was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I would advise anyone interested to reach out Data Science Dojo to begin their journey.
